    Planetary Extinction League Season 2!
    Hey everyone, Broom and I have taken a lead (still working with the previous organisers you know and love) on getting another Extinction League event organised, hopefully to start this Summer. If you're not sure what the Extinction League is, the Season 1 forum post is here.

    This season, we're running a double elimination bracket, the first games of which will run on the 7th of July. We’ll be looking to play two games each Saturday (at a time that may vary due to Clan timezones), all of which will hopefully be streamed and livecasted. Once those games are finished, we will host large FFA games that anyone can join on the custom server we use for the tournament.

    The bracket for the season can be viewed on Challonge! This weekend we'll have games between Mythical and BSE, TPP and MeNG, and then the winner of that game versus ICARUS.

    Get Involved
    Unfortunately, signups are now closed. However, that doesn't stop you from joining any of the clans that have already entered. Failing that, we'd love to see you supporting the event as a viewer. Additionally, anyone looking to get involved with the event as tournament staff or a caster is encouraged message either Broom (Thatsonofabroom#5546) or me (AcesOyster#1239) on Discord or these forums.

    Thanks! GLHF

    Awesome! I really enjoyed the first season too! Even the after-party slugfest that is 32FFA. :)

    Aces and I are currently working on the map list and we should be done within the week ;) . We just need to make sure that the maps work. Feel free to make suggestions!

    I understand that the clan match ups my be uneven, wrt player counts, but @grandhomie map pack has some very nice, symmetrical maps that tend to keep confrontations on an even footing.

    Team Burning will be participating in the event, we would like to secure orange (primary) and light blue (secondary) for the nostalgic feeling from our legacy PA roots.

    Let me get this straight.

    1. The organisers make all the maps. No home systems for clans anymore, so the entire dimension of making your home system to complement your skills and exploit your opponents' weaknesses is gone.

    2. The goal is not to win, since you are discouraged from bringing your best players, and you will be "insulted" for it by the organisers personally. The goal is to have a casual balanced match.

    3. If you play with fewer players than your opponent has, you get fewer points even if you win, instead of more. How does this make any sense again? Or am I misunderstanding your English?

    The rules of this tournament seem to me a regression from even the old Exodus Clan Wars. [regression means "step back"]

    Your comments are completely unnecessary and add nothing of value.

    PXS are once again looking forward to participating, however fielding a newer, younger, HUNGRIER generation of players!! (don't expect too much :p )

    Good luck to all taking part however, and good luck to the organisers!

    Hi I am representing a team of 3 players that would like to play in the tournament. Our team name is Main Game, we would like to reserve the colors black and light green (the one in the bottom left of the color selection) and we have a logo (it looks goofy on purpose). Is it possible to join with only 3 players? We can commit to the games and are serious about this. PA Main Game Logo.png

    The deadline for signups is rapidly approaching: the 4th of June at 13:00pm UTC. You must have at least 4 players to sign up.

    I am pleased to announce that 11 clans have signed up, and that Broom and I are working out an appropriate tournament format now. As 11 is prime, and a round robin would be 55 games, that process might take a little time and some creative maths. Stay tuned!

    How do you handle clan-army-sharing? Allowed or not?
